The two seem similar to the untrained eye, making it difficult to tell the difference between the two structural […]
4 Tips For Preventing Tin Whiskers
Tin plating—i.e., a process that involves coating a substrate with layers of tin—is commonly used during the manufacture of printed circuit boards (PCBs). It is used to protect the copper traces from corrosion, oxidation, and other possible forms of degradation during production and use. As tin is readily available, easily solderable, and highly corrosion-resistant, it […]
Automated vs. Manual Tape and Reel Packaging
Tape and reel technology is the most common means of processing, handling, storing, and transporting precision surface-mounted electronic components. Tape and reel services save on time, space, energy, and materials while providing safety and stability for electronic devices. The three primary types of tape and reel include axial, radial, and surface mount. The Differences […]
